2009 CCCX #5 Preview

Here's the scoop on this weekend's CCCX Downhill course:
Speeds will be at a all time high for the CCCX Series as gravity will dictate most of the action for race #5. The course opens up with a drag race sprint start, which leads into some super fast fire road sections. The course then dashes into a new section, freshly cut, that has never been used for a CCCX DH event. This new section dices in between oak trees and slices through Toro Park chaparral. The trail then connects to some portions of switch back trail that will test turning and tire traction. Following the switch backs, there is more steep sections added that have not been used in past events. The trail then pops out to the standard CCCX DH finish straight. The entire trail is extremely fast, and the racing action will be full on.
Saturday is the CCCX Cross Country (XC) race, while Sunday is the CCCX Downhill.
